Telus continues to see what it calls a strong appetite for broadband data amongst the 3.8 million wireline customers it serves in Canada.

Telcos in Canada like Bell Aliant, Bell Canada and Telus are using their fiber optic networks to cut into the cable TV business stronghold and bring in their own batches of video subscribers, a research group says.

Canada plans to allocate another $278 million over the next five years to extend and upgrade facilities to deliver broadband services in the country's rural and northern communities, according to an IT World Canada report.

Sprint and T-Mobile US confirmed Thursday that they joined follow U.S. company Verizon Communications in declining to participate in Canada's 700 MHz spectrum auction, set for January.
